Pink & red Valentine´s card!

2018-01-30 14:15 | 0 kommentarer


Today I share a little step-by-step guide on the
masking process when making this Valentine´s Card!


I just love this sweet Tiny Townie "Penelope has a pencil" stamp,
from Stampingbella, and I love that little Hi stamp that comes with it!


As I don´t have a Happy Valentine´s Day stamp I printed out the sentiment
on my Copic friendly cardstock (Vision Pro), the font I used is
American Typewriter, to match the Hi stamp!

I then stamped the image and colored it with Copic markers.
I think reds and pinks are such a pretty color combination!
The image on the right hand side is a mask (stamped on Stamping Mask 
paper from Inkadinkado and fussy cut) for the actual image.


I die cut a circle from masking paper and placed it over the masked image
and put a strip of post-it note at the bottom. I then inked the inside of the
circle using Distress Inks, Festive Berries and Picked Raspberry.


When finished blending the Distress Inks I removed the strip of
post-it and the masking paper for the circle.


The most exciting part of the masking process is when removing the
masking paper from the image! I always manage to get small (tiny)
areas of white from placing the masking paper a little off, I use a matching
Copic marker for these white areas and no one can ever tell!


I applied a coat of Clear Spectrum Noir to the big pen to make it shimmer!

Day 11 and the Tag it Challenge!

2018-01-26 22:44 | 4 kommentarer


For Day 11 of the 30 day coloring challenge I colored a tag
with the sweet little nurse mouse from Create a Smile Stamps!
It is also my entry for the new challenge over on the
Create a Smile Stamps blog!
I am so excited that they are doing challenges now!

Here is my tag!


I did some masking with the teacup, the little doctor´s
bag and the mouse from the "Doctor´s Helpers" set.
The sentiment stamp is also from the same set.


Both the background and the images are colored with Copic markers.


The striped paper, (a bit shiny in the photo, sorry about that) is from the
"Spots & Stripes  Brights" paper pad from Sugar Pea Design.
The tag die is from the "Terrific tag" die set from Bo Bunny.

Thank you for stopping by today!


Tags, day 1-7!

These are my tags from the first week of the
30 Day Coloring Challenge, hosted by lovely Kathy!


My tags from day 1-7, I am so happy that I chose to go with tags this time.
I want to be able to participate every day if it is possible, and tags are a
manageable project for me. Last time I just colored stamped images randomly,
I don´t like to color up things in advance, to use later on cards.
I want to pick and chose images and color combinations as I go when making cards!


Day 1, stamp: Stampingbella


Day 2, stamp: Kraftin´ Kimmie Stamps


Day 3, stamp: Art Impressions


Day 4, stamp: Clearly Besotted


Day 5, stamp: Stampingbella


Day 6, stamp: Basik & Co


Day 7, stamp: Basik & Co


I have colored these tags using Copic markers, on some
I have added white gel pen for dots, Glossy accents or Stickles!


Thank you for stopping by, hope to see you again soon!



Lots of Valentine kittens!

2018-01-18 13:20 | 0 kommentarer


So many kittens to go on this card!
I colored everyone of the little cats in different shades of grey, using
Copic markers, but let all their balloons be the same pink!  


As I don´t have a stamp saying Happy Valentine´s day,
I printed the sentiment on to the card stock, the font is called Noteworthy.


I let one cat be in focus on the banner, peeking out from behind!
I tried both white and black card stock behind her and finally
decided to go with black as it made her pop!


Sometimes I find it difficult to find card stock in the right shade of color for matting,
when you just want that little glimpse of color along the edges of your project.
I then take a piece of white card stock, and just color in the outer edge of it with
a Copic marker.


Thank you for stopping by!


Valentine kitties!

This little cat from the "Little Cat Agenda" set from Mama
Elephant is perfect when making Valentine cards!


There are twenty cats to chose from in this set but I only used one!
I colored them all grey but a little different from each other!
They are colored with Copic markers.


The post-it note is from the "Sticky Notes" set, also from Mama Elephant.


The background is very simple, just Distress Inks, Tumbled Glass and Moved Lawn.


I have also added a coat of Glossy Accents to all the hearts! As I don´t have
many Valentine stamps or sentiments for this ocassion,
I printed the sentiment on the cardstock (before stamping the post-it note), using
the font Noteworthy.


Thank you for stopping by today!



Prepared for the next 30 Day coloring Challenge!

It is time for the next "30 day coloring challenge", hosted by lovely Kathy!

It starts tomorrow and I am so prepared!


This time I am going to color tags!


I have die cut tags in different sizes and shapes, and stamped them.
So I am ready to just pick and chose from day to day! I guess I won´t have
time to complete them at once, so I will just focus on coloring them!

Thank you for stopping by!



Another envelope/ticket holder!

2018-01-08 14:12 | 0 kommentarer


I made another envelope/ticket holder as part of a birthday gift last week.
I think this map design is so fun and also know its highly appreciated by the reciever as they soon realize that they are going somewhere displayed on the map!


For this one I used some of the cute hedgehog stamps from the
"Every Which Way" set from Penny Black!


This was also to be given to a man as was the red and black I made a few weeks ago and I decided to go for a color combination of green and turquoise and the black/white twine. Love that twine, as it goes with everything!


The row of hedgehogs are fussy cut and glued on to
the card stock! The hedgehogs are colored with Copic markers!
The "Moxie" alphabet letters are from QuicKutz.


The inside is very simple, the card stock is folded and glued on the sides, using double sided tape! 


Thank you for stopping by!


Hello Greg!

Hello and Happy New Year!

This is a card I made for my Instagram friend Aileen´s dad!
Sendig some crafty happiness to Australia to brighten his day!


I wanted this card to feel special to him and right away
before even planning my card design I decided I wanted a
sign with his name on it!

The sign I drew free hand, the hello is a stamp from
Hero arts "Many everyday messages" set 
and the letters are from the alphabet die set Moxie from QuicKuts. 


I wanted some kind of background for the sign and the little cat gang and went for a circle, this is actually my third attempt and I like the end result as it is kind of subtle and "barely there". For my first circle I was quite heavy on the Distress inks, I splattered some drops of water to it and it ended up looking like a planet and that wasn´t the result I wanted. For attempt two I colored it using pink, teal and Tumled glass and it just felt too weird!


The cats are from two different stamp sets, the ones on the right and left are from the kitten set from Paperie Ink and the middle one is from the BB "Cool Cat" set from My Favorite Things.


Thank you for stopping by today!
